ME Elecmetal has the capacity to manufacture equipment and spare parts for different kind of smelters, including smelter ladles and slag pots up to 36 tons.
We develop a wide design range of smelter ladles and slag pots for hauling molten metal between the different stages in the copper smelting process (matte, white metal, blister copper, slag).
Smelter ladles and slag pots can be manufactured according the specific needs of customers. Taking into account that smelter ladles and slag pots are subjected to thermal and mechanical forces, ME Elecmetal provides a wide variety of shapes and sizes adapted to each specific application. Proper design can minimize potential deformation helping to assure safer use through the products life cycle.
Our cast steel slag pots are manufactured to ASTM A27, grade 70-36, which has the following mechanical properties:
• Tensile strength: 49 Kg/mm² (min.)
• Yield strength: 25 Kg/mm² (min.)
• Reduction of area: 30% (min.)
• Elongation: 22% (min.)
ASTM A-27 cast steel has high impact resistance and low cracking tendency; it is easily weldable; and has a low deformation tendency.
To assure maximum quality and life, all our smelter ladles and slag pots are subjected to strict quality controls, which include:
• Visual inspection
• Dimensional inspection
• Ultrasonic testing
• Magnetic particles testing
